2000 Nissan Frontier wont start

Asked by Mar 15, 2012 at 06:20 PM about the 2000 Nissan Frontier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Nissan Frontier, and when I turn the key, the engine just turns and turns, but will not start. When I
saw this post I checked the plastic nipple. However I did not find one. I called the guy I bought it from, and he
said that they bypassed that safety switch and rand some kind of wire directly as if the safety switch was always
pressed, and tehrefore the truck should crank even without the clutch being pressed. Could this be causeing
the starting problem? How would I reverse it? Is there perhaps some fuse or relay that could have been blown
by this bypass that I could just change? (*note: When I bought the truck, It would crank just fine, even without the
clutch pressed).

If whatever they did to bypass the clutch switch failed, then the engine wouldn't even turn over. There is a recall on the fuel pump sending units so check with a nissan dealer to find out if this was fixed, they just need your vin number. If not, that could be your problem. If so, check the fuel pump or the distributor. Both of these have failed on my frontier causing the engine to just crank and not start. Hope this helps, good luck!
